Don’t miss a trick with this fantastic example of contemporary children’s fiction
Twelve-year-old Sam sets out on a quest to find out about magic and her long-lost father. The resulting pursuit spans the globe as she finds herself as far afield as Egypt and China. In doing so, Sam encounters a list of strange characters, all featured in a notebook found among her father’s belongings.
Jeanne Willis’ Shamanka (Walker, £7.99 PB) tells a magical story in a magical way. Jeanne’s direct address to the reader, involving us in the magic of Sam’s adventure, makes this story both an exciting adventure and a thought-provoking tale.
